FiPy , connecting to Orange LTE-M (France) , any informations ? [Solved]



  • Hi all ,
    I just receive a SIM for Orange LTE-M network.
    Want to try it with a Fipy working on LoRa for the moment .
    The firmware is nearly up to date:

    (sysname='FiPy', nodename='FiPy', release='1.18.1.r10', version='v1.8.6-849-d53c7f3 on 2019-01-10', machine='FiPy with ESP32', lorawan='1.0.2', sigfox='1.0.1', pybytes='0.9.5')
    

    lte.imei() return is ok , but lte.iccid() return nothing , is there special information to get connected ?

    try a cap command and it returns:

    
    == CAPS config =============================
      .Lock UE on SRV band    : false
      .MFBI support           : true

    OK
    

    my showphy give that:

    any suggestion ?



  • @rskoniec said in FiPy , connecting to Orange LTE-M (France) , any informations ? [Solved]:

    husiast/hobbyst it's impossible

    Thanks for your help. I have also asked ThingsMobile. No agreement with Orange yet as far as LTE-M is concerned.
    Have a nice summer.



  • @Bruno Same here in Poland with Orange - just pilot projects and closed tests with LTE-M enabled on chosen BTS stations. :/ For now - if you're regular enthusiast/hobbyst it's impossible to try it out.



  • @stef Good evening Stef, i guess you've already got an answer. By the way, a simple question : how did you manage to get your Orange SimCard ? I'm quite enthusiastic to test LTE-M but can't find a way to in France.
    Have a pleasant evening.



  • Progressing .....
    for those who need the informations:
    orange LTE-M is b20 (800Mhz) with apn=orange.ltem.spec

    got this on cops:

    >>> print(lte.send_at_cmd('AT+COPS=?'))
    
    +COPS: (2,"Orange F","Orange F","20801",7),,(0,1,2,3,4),(0,1,2)
    

    edit:
    working fine with lte.attach(band=20,apn="orange.ltem.spec")
    the very first connexion was verrrryyyyyy long .... after that all is ok , even when Fipy is powered/unpowered.
